This is installment number two in this brutal and stylized shootem up franchise. Keanu Reeve is the invincible hit man,
John Wick with more lives that a lucky cat. Where he shows up, people die. This one has the twist of a Mafia like central
command that has him on a string and can call him out of retirement to do it’s bidding. Well, there are wrinkles that just
keep slapping him with bigger and bigger challenges coming against him. It is very well done and plays a bit like Pulp
Fiction. Some scenes are beautifully shot is Rome or a Rome like setting. It has a good story line but oh so numbingly violent.
